Question about Hotpoint WMA30 Front Load Washer

2 Answers

Sticking drum There would appear to be something jamming inside the drum. On manually turning the drum it sticks and needs extra force to get it past the obstruction. This results in horrendous noise on spin cycle. How do you get behind the drum??

SOUNDS AS THOUGH THE BEARINGS HAVE COLAPSED..OPEN THE DOOR LIFT THE INTERNAL DRUM AND FEEL FOR ANY MOVEMENT YOU WILL HAVE TO APPLY A BIT OF EFFORT IF IT MOVES ITS THE BEARINGS.

Kenmore electric dryer making loud noise when running


It sounds like the belt that goes around the drum. I have a similar Kenmore, and I get that same rotational thumping noise. The belt is probably about to break or come apart. If you take it off and run it trough your hands, I think that you'll find either belt separation, or a bad spot missing a chunk.
Fortunately the belt is a cheap item. I've kept my Kenmore dryer running over 20 years now.

380 Paper Jam Error just before blue toner is laid down


It sounds like the problem is with cyan drum, drum cover broken?, The fix I'd follow without looking is replace cyan drum (or possible remove drum cover completely if broken) but it could also less likely be the Transport Unit aka "shinny" it just clicks out too for inspection

Keep fingers off drum's and trans unit surface.

Service manual is japanesse english limited stuff, trust me they are not much help, try the user manual it at least has the names of stuff. User manual is on disc that comes with printer or via download from oki's web support page.
